Grace Eloise (McCulty) Myres



Grace Eloise Myers, also lovingly referred to as Weezie, died Saturday, 9 August 2014. She was 95 years young. She was the wife of the late Joseph Myres for 65 years and 5 days. They made their home on Dutch Road for 60 years. Following Joe’s death in 2003 Weezie moved to Florida.



Weezie was the mother of two children, David Myres (Sandy) of Chalfont Pennsylvania and Nancy Myres Emerson (David) of Duneden, Florida. She is survived by seven grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.



Weezie was born in Spencer , WV on Holloween, 1918, in the midst of the Spanish Influenza and her natural mother succumbed to the disease five days later. At the age of two she was adopted by the Stella Haught family of Spencer. She graduated from Spencer High School in 1936 and from Parkersburg Business College in 1938. In April of 1939 she wed Joseph Myres, her high school sweetheart and the love of her life.



Joe and Weezie were loyal members of Trinity Methodist Church where she served as treasurer, piano and organ player and sang in the choir. Most Kanawha valley antique collectors will remember Joe and Weezie at the auctions, flea markets and yard sales where they would vie for the next old quilt, pewter plate or flow blue pitcher. Their home on Dutch Road was a virtual antique store without the sign out front which overflowed into the basement, carport, and garage.



College years for the grandkids found Weezie with her trusty typewriter cranking out the letters to keep the kids informed of all the news worthy of print. At one point she was mailing five letters a week to various colleges around the country just to keep in touch. She was an active cheerleader for her grandkids in college. The seven grandkids earned seven bachelor degrees and two masters.



Relatives and friends will be received by her family in Bartlett-Burdette-Cox Funeral Home, 513 Tennessee Ave., Charleston from 10:00 to 11:00AM Friday, 15 August and are invited to attend her funeral service which follows at 11:00am.



In lieu of flowers contributions may be made in Weezie’s name to the charity of your choice.
